I usually buy these by the German border. Itís black with a nice dark head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and licorice and the mouthfeel is a bit thicker than the Draught and Original. The flavour has notes of bitter chocolate and licorice, and it has a nice bitterness. In the finish I also pick up some coffee notes. Itís nice!

(Bottle) Pours dark, dark brown. Cocoa, coffee powder and roasted malt in aroma with a dry-ish touch. A bit salty.Some wet, sour wood burning. Tiny liquorice notes. A very clean flavour with sour coffee and a light dry ending. A tiny bit peppery aftertaste. Light to medium body.

Beautiful dark reddish color with great head. Burnt malt and coffee flavor. No sweetness but bitter chocolade and slightly watery.

SudsMcDuff (6512) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2006
This beer is one delicous brew! Nice dark black-brown appearance with a nice big head that leaves lotsa lace,and a killer taste that has that little extra kick to it!

gnoff (8150) - MŲlndal, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2006
(Bottle from Swedish Systembolaget) Chocolate aroma, sweet as well. Look is black with a brown head, lasts long. Taste is sweet chocolate, but no surprises or anything interesting. Pretty much plain boring and sweet..

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Courtesy of oh6gdx. Thanks, Pat. Aroma is roasty and (to my suprise) slightly smoky, smelling a bit like a freshly stamped campfire still covered in settling dirt and dust. Body is flat black and holds a mostly lasting thumb thick tan head. Tastes thinner than the Guinness brewed in Canada and has some of that slight smoke in the flavor echoing the smell in the aroma. Lacks some of the dark fruit notes in the American version as well. Drier and more abrupt in the finish.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 one of the three beers I found on a new liquor store. I expected it to be better. A bit light and watery but the taste is pretty good.

Lightweight and watery compared to many stouts from micro brewers - despite this being "the original". Some coffee taste, but rather boring.
